Calponin is a 34-kD actin filament-associated regulatory protein that interacts with actin, tropomyosin, and calmodulin.1 It is involved in the smooth muscle contraction mechanism and is restricted exclusively to smooth muscle tissue and myoepithelial cells.2 Anti-calponin has been found to be useful marker for differentiating benign sclerosing lesions of the breast from invasive carcinoma.3
